The 'China boom' started illegal mining in Karnataka with miners, transporters and suppliers breaking every rule in the book to plunder the natural resources of the state. The Lokayukta report mentioned the various methods used by the people involved in the mining industry to illegally lift, transport and export iron ore from Karnataka. The miners' lobby bribed officials and forged documents to loot iron ore, especially from Bellary, Tumkur and Chitradurga districts. This and a lot more chaos unfurled with the illegal mining issue coming to light. To know more about this story and the Lokayukta report in Karnataka watch Reportaaz at 10 am and 8:30 pm on Sunday, 18th September only on IBN-Lokmat.
CBI officers had searched the residences of former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhana & Srinivasa Reddy on charges of Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) doing illegal mining in Karnataka and arrested the duo on 5th of September 2011. They seized more than Rs 3 crore cash, over 30 kg of gold and several other documents from both the houses. Former Karnataka Lokayukta Justice N Santosh Hegde’s report mentioned illegal mining in Karnataka and exporting ore via Andhra to ports in east coast like Vishakhapatnam, Kakinada despite a ban on iron export by Karnataka government. The opposition parties had been pressurizing Yeddyurappa to resign following the the Lokayukta findings in which he was implicated in the illegal mining scam.
The loss to the Karnataka state exchequer due to illegal exports was around Rs 12,22,000 crore from the year 2006 to 2010. To check this process of illegal mining, export was banned from 2010 despite which 17.58 lakh tones of ore were illegally exported out of the state. Karnataka is amidst a huge political crisis since Yeddyurappa’s acquittal from the post of chief minister over a $3.6 billion illegal mining scandal.
Know more about this ‘Mining scandal’ tune into Reportaaz at 10 am and 8:30 pm on Sunday, 18th September only on IBN-Lokmat
